Call for papers: "Emotion and Decision Making in a Connected Society"

For a special issue of the International Journal of the Digital Human.

‘Emotion’ comes from the Latin words e=ex=out and movere=move. ‘Motivation’ also comes from movere. Thus, motivation-action-emotion constitutes a cycle and this cycle is repeated. Decision making is carried out to determine the way to effectively allocate our available resources to make an adequate action. Thus, emotion and decision making are deeply associated. An increasing move towards the connected society calls for faster and adaptive decision making to cope with the frequently changing situations. The importance of decision making with due consideration to emotion is rapidly increasing. Up until now, industries have focused mainly on external motivation or on how they can provide good products. However, customer expectations are quickly moving towards how their intrinsic motivations will be satisfied, or in other words, they are looking more for emotional satisfaction. How these needs can be satisfied in a digitalising society is an imminent issue.

Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Emotion and decision making in design
  • Emotion and decision making in human behavior
  • Brain science and neuroscience approach
  • Brain and body co-ordination
  • Experience digitalisation and creation
  • Intrinsic motivation
  • Multi-sensory motivation and experience
